The 222nd Nightwolves are a general all-around squadron with a tradition of adapting to unanticipated changes in the battlefield. The pilots of the Nightwolves are celebrated for their observation skills and willingness to perform any mission in any type of fighter, depending on what the situation calls for. The Nightwolves were based on board the GTD Orestes during the beachhead operation to Sol in 2385, but were disbanded shortly after the failure of the operation, with its pilots transferred to other squadrons. No official reason has been given by GTVA Command, and the details of their operations on board the Orestes remain classified to this day.
